While playing it safe with your fashion choices at Cannes won’t get you any praise, a risky choice doesn’t guarantee anything either. Some stylists managed to keep their celebrity clients perfectly dressed for the entire duration of the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival, but for others, a single mistake was enough to secure a place among the worst dressed celebrities at Cannes 2014.
See the looks that certainly made a strong impression on the red carpet at Cannes, but not in a good way.
Barely qualifying as a celebrity outside her own country, Russian model and author Elena Lenina more than makes up for it with her outlandish fashion choices.
Showing off two outfits that would leave any fashion critic speechless, she definitely earned the top spot among the worst dressed celebrities at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival.
The hi-low dress worn by French actress Marion Cotillard at the “Two Days, One Night” premiere was definitely not a winning look.
The look may be part of Christian Dior’s spring 2014 couture collection, but pairing the shapeless dress with the wrong shoes is definitely a choice worthy of the worst dressed celebrities at Cannes 2014.
Brazilian supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio can certainly make the best out of every dress she wears, but her choice of an Atelier Versace spring 2014 dress wasn’t the right one. Mixing heavy beading with fringe detailing creates a look that’s way too busy for the red carpet.
Despite sporting two winning looks during the film festival, Julianne Moore also made the list of worst dressed celebrities at Cannes 2014 because of a less than stylish Louis Vuitton look. Even the best skirt in the world couldn’t save her leather top from simply being wrong for the red carpet.
The annual amfAR Cinema Against AIDS gala at Cannes is the best place for taking on a risk, but Rosario Dawson’s choice of a Vionnet spring 2014 gown with a netted panel at the bust was made even worse by pairing it with a shoulder bag with fringe detailing.
Forgetting that a bottom isn’t optional on the red carpet, Sharon Stone wore an Emilio Pucci black mini-dress for the premiere of “The Search”. Accessorized with gold sandals and mirror aviator glasses, the dress is simply too short and the lace-up detailing at the bust is another reason why it landed the actress among the worst dressed celebrities at Cannes 2014.
Dutch model Lara Stone went for vintage Versace at the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS gala in Cannes, but her choice ended up being way too costumey for pretty much any red carpet event. While baring your midriff on the red carpet is a look that some celebrities pull of, Lara Stone wasn’t so lucky.
Opting for an Alberta Ferretti fall 2013 black chiffon gown might have seemed like the right choice for Christina Hendricks, but the look ended up as very unflattering on the actress at the “Lost River” premiere, earning her a place among the worst dressed celebrities at Cannes 2014.
Putting her wrong foot forward at the opening ceremony of the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival, model Karlie Kloss looked like she just stepped out of her boudoir in her sheer Valentino lace look, worn over a green onesie.
Russian model Irina Shayk opted for Atelier Versace at the premiere of “The Search” during the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival, but the vibrant color and the modern lines of her dress failed to make a positive impact on the red carpet.
While his new girlfriend, Paris Hilton barely managed to miss the worst dressed celebrities at Cannes 2014, the Canadian singer stood out at the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS gala among much better dressed men. His shiny double-breasted suit is ill-fitting and misses the mark completely.
